I'd love this job, but heights make me dizzy and my butthole puckers...too many fall calls as a paramedic I guess.

Screw that! I had to rebuild 3 dormers on our house one year and had extension ladders hanging over the top with special tools, then 2x12's across them so I could walk between them.

That picture is funny though!

Did you medic down in SoCal when you were still down there? AMR?

Wife did almost 20 years with them, minus a few short years in the middle when they lost the county contract and West Med moved in.

Yes, Brown did. $.20 cents on Diesel, and sales tax at 5.75% I believe. Sales tax use to be 1.75% on Diesel. But it went way up from the last time I bought it at $3.09.9 I believe. That was high enough. Then If you have a car that you don't have to smog, there's an extra $100.oo fee on that every year. And regular DMV fee's go up $25.oo dollars to $175.oo depending on what it's value is. I mean, they think every buddy is made out of money. There still trying to push threw insurance on how many miles a year you drive. Who you think is pushing that.

Now that's more like it. Wife's been looking at houses in Idaho, little late in life for us in the cold country but we just had family move there last year. Been trying to get her to move for 40 years but she won't here of it. Any way we'll see.

Gas here in the Hill Country is$1.99 and diesel is $2.29.

Stew, I was a medic for AMR and Rural Metro in San Dieguito and SD County. I was almost done with the hiring process for San Diego Fire when they went on an indefinite hiring freeze around the time of the crash.That was my catalyst to get out of EMS. I LOVED my job, but $14 an hour is no way to live in Southern California if you want anything besides dirt for supper.

A few years ago I found a jacket that I had in high school (1990-1994). In one of the pockets was one of those old carbon credit card receipts where you put the card on the tray and then slide the mechanism over the card and receipt.

Anyway, it was for $.98 for premium fuel. I remember going by gas stations and saying $1.00 for gas, that is crazy and there is no way I am paying that much! How times change as now I am glad to see it near $2.00 every time I see a sign.

I remember premium going over $1 here. Dad would send me on the riding lawnmower to the gas station with the gas can for the dirt bikes with the oil already in it and a 5 dollar bill. I never paid attention to the price just always got as close to 5 gallons exactly as I could. Realized it was over $5 this time. Shut the pump off and went inside and told them I needed more money. My grandparents lived half a block away and I walked up and got a few quarters from my Grandpa.

Roofing my old house, I had staged most of the stuff on the relatively level porch roof, with my pickup backed up to the porch so I could toss the old roofing stuff right into the bed. I had covered the porch roof with a tarp and a 4x8 sheet of plywood to protect it. I was standing on the plywood with a pile of trash getting ready to shovel it off when my neighbor came over to say hi. I moved a bit on the plywood and it suddenly started to slide off the roof. I plopped on my butt and me, the plywood and all the crap on it sailed off the roof and straight into the bed of the truck. Pure genius! Didn't tried it again though.
